We’ve known about it for a while, but now it’s official: Hearthstone will be getting an expansion this December, and it’ll be full of explosive fun!
Goblins vs. Gnomes adds over 120 new cards to the Hearthstone mix, many of which will be themed around World of Warcraft’s mechanical-minded miscreants. There’s a new card type, Mech, and many of the sample cards shown on the expansion’s page have random effects. That makes sense for goblin-themed cards, but your enjoyment mileage may vary (with your RNG rolls).
Another interesting feature being added with the expansion is Spectator Mode, enabling online players on your friends list to watch your games. You can turn off the feature if you want to keep your games private and avoid heckling from the peanut gallery.
What do you think? If you stepped away, is a new expansion enough to get you back into Hearthstone?
